or lizard emoji [liz-erd ih-moh-jee]
What does 🦎 mean?
The lizard emoji is a straightforward small lizard, looking like a salamander or gecko with a long body, four short legs, two large eyes, and clearly outlined claws, or toes.
It's used in all kinds of reptilian references and also to refer to desert or tropical climates.
Where does come from?
This representation of the squamate branch of reptiles (meaning, scaled reptiles, such as snakes and lizards) is green, but these creatures actually come in a rainbow of colors.
The lizard emoji is green though … and it’s also a quadrupedal lizard (meaning it has four legs) because a “legless lizard” (that’s a thing) would be confusing, and look a lot like a snake. A legless lizard is not a snake. It’s a legless lizard, with eyelids, openings for ears, and notched rather than forked tongues. Now you know a lot about lizards …
The lizard emoji was approved as part of Unicode 9.0 in 2016 and added to Emoji 3.0 in 2016.
Who uses ?
Lizards are not dogs or cats, or kittens or puppies. Everybody does not love lizards. But some people do.
And they like to share pics of their scaly pets with the lizard emoji.
Other people use it in reference to things that are somewhat reptilian in nature, or to warm climates and desert living … or even to dry skin. Scaly.
